The "air of authority about him... wafted toward her like a tangible object." Tangible objects, generally speaking, do not waft.
"and wed Michael's mother, an inappropriate actress and singer." What is an inappropriate actress? Was she a porn star? Or are we trying to say that she was an actress and singer, which his parents considered inappropriate in a future daughter-in-law?
"He yearned to loaf in her presence." What does that even mean? There's nothing romantic about loafing. Why not just say he wanted to spend more time with her?
Additionally, the writer seems to prefer revealing her characters' personality traits by informing us directly rather than showing us through action. That is, "he was arrogant," "she was loyal," etc., when it would be better to demonstrate her loyalty by showing her actions.
I'm disappointed because it would probably be an amusing story, but it's difficult to read this book without getting distracted by the poor quality of the writing.
I think I would not have been as effected by this copying if I had waited a few weeks in between book one and two. I probably wouldn't have realized the characters did, acted and said many of the same things as in book one. Too late! And as far as that goes, I'm right on to book three! Here's hoping Ms. Holt did a better job with this one!
In my opinion, I did not like the title to this book for the character of this Lost Lords of Radcliffe. Heart's Demand should of been the title of Matthew's story. Heart's Delight was more of the character of Bryce, I even noticed this in his character in Evangeline's story in Wonderful. Bryce was a delightful individual as to Matthew who was more DEMANDing, ordering Clarissa to marry him not to mention, he was a Captian in the King's army. Michael should be DESIRE because he surely desired Magdalena way too badly. All in all, I enjoyed all the stories and any fan of Cheryl Holt or regency romances would love them too. Great entertainment.
